Peripheral Neuropathy and Treatment from a Chiropractor on Our Chiropractic Care Team
The nervous system incorporates nerve branches and endings that span the entire body. From every fingertip and body surface to the brain. However, when malfunctions occur, the same nerve endings and connections turn on the body, creating pain sensations and illogical sensations that don’t seem to have an obvious cause. If you are suffering from neuropathy pain, we at SoCal Spinal Decompression Center, Lee Chiropractic, Inc. in Los Angeles, CA, are here to help with diabetic neuropathy treatment from a chiropractor on our team.
As a nervous system condition, peripheral neuropathy tends to happen in the feet and hands, particularly in specific nerve branch endings. The sensations may happen in one finger or toe, or the entire limb. It can involve multiple nerve branches or a singular one. It can happen because of diabetes but it can also happen because of certain types of cancer treatment.
Peripheral neuropathy may manifest in the form of sensations such as numbness, unexplained pain and burning sensations, shooting pains, loss of motor control and coordination problems. Diabetic patients might find themselves having to address the condition as their diabetes affects nerve endings. Some types of cancer might impact nerve behavior too. Heavy drinking of alcohol as well as autoimmune conditions might also increase your risk for peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
Diabetic neuropathy treatment and similar involves a combination of diet management and nutrition improvement, changes in behavior, avoiding medications that have an impact on the nervous system, and potentially more. All of these areas can be helped and guided by the professional advice of a chiropractor. Additionally, a chiropractor can provide help via targeted adjustments that might help improve blood flow to affected areas as well as spinal alignment, potentially reducing the amount of resistance to the nervous system working properly.
